Fall on Monument Street
It's fall in Concord... isn't it breathtaking? The left photo is the carefully pruned maple by our garage. The right photo is looking out to the Minute Man Park (for those of you who forgot 11th grade history... it's where the opening battle of the Revolutionary War occurred and it is absolutely gorgeous, peaceful and down-in-your-soul restorative all year round).
Well things are happening... the cabinets by Crown Point are going in. And they're gorgeous. GORGEOUS. I was worried about the paint color but it's perfect.
The tile is almost done (it's a handmade subway tile glazed aqua by Pratt and Larson). Poor Roger... I made him take it all down because it wasn't perfect. And now, strip by strip, he is putting it back up. He is from Florida and the bathroom is cold, so cold tile, wet saw and no heat are taking their toll. But doesn't it look beautiful? I am so glad I went with something cool and dramatic.
The de-leaded front doors... ready to be repainted (and loving that there is a doorknob and a lock again). See that big round brass thing? That's the original doorbell. You turn a key on the outside and it rings. Fabulous.
Stay tuned for my update on the fireplace!
